My Friend Danny

came to visit.  Legally

blind we met a million years ago

Israeli Peace Corps he sees light

he explained on a walk up Mt. Nebo

what light is what light can be  moved

to Alaska started a program for special needs children

Alaska cold and happy he said

sent photographs a blind man’s pictures

was his title light and light he’s married

lives in Philadelphia life he said yesterday

life is about light he said.  We

have to find it where we can.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
